Household Chores

Sometimes, I could use some help with things. And when you offer, especially at these times, it makes my day. For example, when you offered while I was making dinner, and I just heard the laundry buzz, I really needed an extra pair of hands to move the clothes from the washer to the dryer, and more what was in the dryer somewhere else.

My hero!

That said, when you offer to do a favor, and I accept, optimally you should check to see if the laundry's dry before actually removing it from the dryer. It helps with the whole "doing a favor" part of doing the favor. I'm not saying I'm perfect by any stretch. I botch up recipes all the time. Like when I misread the part that said "marinade for one hour," resulting in that great Thai delivery. Good intentions, good intentions.

I'm just saying.

Update: Upon reading this, MetaDaddy reflected on how the clothes did feel dry to him. To be fair, some pants had tumbled into a knot, thereby preventing thorough drying. So while it might seem like he never helps around the house and on the one occassion he did, he did a lousy job, I must say this is absolutely not the case. He's great, and helps with everything, including dinner, chores, and most importantly, all that is MetaBaby. It only seems fair to straighten that out if I'm going to vent on the one incident. But we're all human, and sometimes, even the best of us "miss" that knotted up pair of pants that didn't get its full dose in the dryer. Again, just saying.

OMG, this was hilarious. And oh-so-true for Mom's. EVERYWHERE.

Bless MetaDaddy's heart for the rebuttal!
